The Equimark Premier KZN Yearling Sale was conducted at Clairwood racecourse yesterday. The small catalogue of just 64 horses saw four of the top five prices go to progeny of Summerhill sires.
Of note, the first progeny of freshmen sires Labeeb and Malhub faced the auctioneer and snared second and fourth highest price respectively. Not surprisingly, given his run of graded stakes success this season, the ever consistent Muhtafal took third and fifth highest price.
R130,000 was outlaid by Ormond Ferrasis for Lot 8 - MAGICAL (Bay colt by Labeeb x Bite Your Tongue). Consignor Clarkin Thoroughbred Services.
R125,000 was paid by Dennis Bosch for Lot 36 - ELECTRIFYING (Bay colt by Muhtafal x Le Ntombi). Consignor Connington Stud
R100,000 was paid by Marsh Shirtliff for Lot 19 - IMAGE INTENSIFIER (Bay filly by Malhub x First Spring). Consigned by Connington Stud.
R90,000 was paid by Ron Philips for Lot 52 - BOLD ALLIANCE (Chestnut colt by Muhtafal x Snapper Dapper). Consigned by Connington Stud.
